I've been writing about a couple wines from Soave lately and here's another one that pretty good.
Like most Soave, this one is made from 100% garganega. It's one of the brands from Cantina . Soave
The thing that really makes this wine stand out is how aromatic it is. There's a floral quality on the nose that is just delightful. It's one of those wines that I spend more time sniffing than tasting, although it tastes pretty darn good too.
It's made from 100% garganega grapes and is, of course, from the Veneto region in where the Soave DOC is located.
I know this is a scent description that annoys some people, but I have to say this wine is "round" on the nose. What I mean by that is the sensation generated by the aromas in this wine is one that …
…an easy leap to make. Whisky is so rough on the system. Something like a nice high-acid wine like Soave or a Sicilian Insolia. These are high production wines, so the cost wouldn't be prohibitive. In fact, the wines could be shipped in bladders and distributed in barrels or tanks for further savings. An added bonus would be, when the bad guys try to burn down the saloon (or the city) by shooting up the place or pouring bottles of whiskey on tables and striking a match on the side of their …

He was with a group of men at the power table, all pretty …and to and . So when I showed him a delicate , he wasn't moved. I wrote about this some time ago, about
Another easy drinking and pleasant Italian white - happily and clearly Garganega. A pale lemon green with a zesty lemon fruit profile on the nose, firm acidity on the palate with a grassy/nettle note on the finish. 86 Points

Nice citrus nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Lemongrass and floral notes on the finish
This is a nice example of Soave Classico, if a bit less complex than some. The citrus notes are nicely offset by floral notes, and the acidity is just right. Soave Classico is primarily made from Garganega in Northeast Italy. Expect to pay $ 15 for this, and raise a glass!

Pieropan does not buy any grapes; all of their wines are produced from estate-grown grapes. In 2011, Pieropan became certified organic for their Valpolicella and Amarone. They are in their second year of organic certification for Soave.
Ninety-five percent of Soave is produced by large …
…specifically, wines that are named after a place and/or those that have DOC designation. For example: Soave, Orvieto, Frascati, Valpolicella, Bardolino, Chianti are all wines named after the region in which the grapes are grown. My personal "go-to" in every situation is a dry Frascati — it's a crisp, mildly fruity wine that matches with just about any dish, tends to be a crowd-pleaser, and is fairly inexpensive.
That's really the key for a barbecue or summer …
